Redacted Unredacted #2

by

The senator appears to have been plotting to surprise the President with a birthday party. The senator was allegedly trying to recruit as many fellow congressmen as he could persuade to join his secret plot. The plan was to lure the President to a closed door meeting and then jump out and yell "Surprise!" The President would then be given gifts and a large cake. The plotting congressmen would then watch while he blew out his candles. After the party the mess would quickly be cleaned up and a special announcement would be made to the public about the celebration.

    Been thinking about this format for a while. I'm not sure if it came off like I wanted it to.

    Thanks, Neville. It's interesting to try and write it where the unredacted bit is innocuous until you black some of the words out. But I suppose that was what I was going for with this series. You can make practically anything sound criminal by removing a few words. And I think the governments of the world know that.

    Brilliantly done. I was convinced it was a plot to kill. How wrong was I. Interesting way to write. Please do more.

    Thanks, LesleyAnne. It was inspired by seeing a document online that the government recently released and so many of the words were blacked out for "national security reasons" that you could barely understand what it was even about.
